iOS

  • 15 more levels were added to Angry Birds in an update today, continuing the “Ham ‘Em High” world. There are still 15 more levels still on the way to complete the most recent level pack, but if you breeze through this update the next bit of news might be able to hold you over.
  • Angry Birds will have an update to their Angry Birds Seasons version in spirit of Valentine’s Day. The update will hit iOS and Android devices sometime next week and will feature a festive set of levels for the holiday of love. Check out a few preview screenshots below!

Android

  • See above. Angry Birds!
  • Sony may have announced their upcoming PlayStation Suite which will bring games to Android devices, but the folks at Tiger King decided to make their own emulator to get Nintendo DS games on the platform. The emulator is still in beta and is said to be running “very slow”, but if they keep chugging at it you might just be playing DS titles on your Android device before you know it – not that it’s legal, however.

Sony

  • The Playstation Phone has been Sony’s worst kept secret, and it still has yet to be officially announced by the electronics giant. As we touched upon last week, Engadget got their hands on and detailed the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play. This week, it seems the device’s first commercial has been leaked as well. Read our post on the Xperia Play commercial here.
